I am unsure that VI is installed by default on the dead fedora 13
"nano" is installed
However fedora 13 is WELL PAST it's end of life
it hit it's END OF SUPPORT on "2011-06-04"
there is NO firefox 11 nor 10,nor 8 nor 6 in the historical archive for fedora 13
you are stuck with firefox 3
please install a current and SUPPORTED version
fedora 16 is current .Next month fedora 17 is to be released
i would like to know how to open a file in fedora.
you boot into the gui ( just like on Apple Mac and MS windows )
you login to your normal user account you set up ON THE FIRST BOOT
the desktop manager starts up ( just like on windows 7,vista,xp,98,...)
you double click on your "home" icon on your desktop( just like on windows 7,vista,xp,98,... and Apple)
you then double click on a file in your home folder ( just like on windows 7,vista,xp,98,...and Apple )
i keep getting a not recognized as a internal or external command
when you open a terminal from your normal user account it AUTO opens to " /home/YourUserName " also called " ~/"
you are Already IN your $HOME folder ( like cmd.exe on windows 7,vista,xp,me,98,... but in your home folder and not C:\\WINDOWS )
if you want to open a text file in the terminal ( and NOT in the fedora DEFAULT text editor " gedit" )
use a text /terminal editor like nano or Vi
some basic reading looks to be in order
-- a bit old but still good ,the basics have not changed--
